    Letter from Mrs. Florence CARPENTER 31st May 1984 “He was a scaffold Foreman for a building contractor and responsible for the safety of the erections. No one was at work on that Christmas Eve because there was a very thick fog, but an Inspector insisted on being taken up, very much against Grandad’s better judgement. According to the Inspector’s evidence at the inquest, Grandad lost his bearings in the fog on the way down and fell off the unfinished scaffold. That was his story because he wanted to reduce the firm’s liability for inspecting in a thick fog, for compensation purposes.”

The idea of these charts is to give the information that we have found in the research we have done and put together and with the help of many other people who have contacted us over the past thirty odd years we have been researching our family. The idea is that you click on the Chart box in blue to be taken to the next family. There is now a large number of charts to be found and connections can be made to all the main families I am researching. If a chart has a box with the standard background it means that as yet I have not put the Chart on the Web.
To conform to the Data Protection Act all the Charts have been altered to exclude all details for living people other than the name.
